2022 Land Rover Defender X Powerful Luxury Off-Road SUV
For years, the Land Rover Defender was the United Kingdom's answer to the rough-and-tumble Jeeps of America, but with the latest generation the luxury brand has engineered a higher-level of comfort to go along with the off-roader's go-anywhere capability. Both two- and four-door body styles are on offer, with comfortable and practical cabins, modern infotainment and tech features, and a signature style that is pure Defender. A turbocharged four-cylinder is standard and more powerful inline-six and V-8 engines are available; all Defenders come standard with all-wheel drive. From there, buyers are offered a plethora of advanced off-roading equipment, including locking differentials, a height-adjustable air suspension, and a special mode for wading through deep water. But the biggest benefit to the new generation Defender's setup is its superior on-road driving behavior, which gives it a level of refinement that rivals such as the Jeep Wrangler and Lexus GX can't match.
